Conclusion / Investment Strategy

This at par SME offer is at higher P/E. Due to entry barriers, low preference for SME IPOs by the broking community at large. However, investors with surplus funds may invest at their own discretion for long term, bearing in mind that stock market investments are linked to market risks. The author has no plans to invest in this IPO.
